Proven Care Strategies for Aging Loved Ones

Transform lives by empowering yourself or your employees with the knowledge and skills to navigate the challenges of caring for aging loved ones, particularly those experiencing dementia. The result? Everybody wins!  Loved ones will feel like a partner instead of a recipient of your energies, and you’ll experience a profound sense of calm as you embrace understanding their illness and begin working with your partner instead of doing things for them or to them.

With improvement in both your home life and work-life balance, you will now lead the way to a changed relationship, naturally becoming the best care partner you can be!

I wanted to express my extreme gratitude for Elaine Poker-Yount and all that she does in the Dementia space. I have personally known and worked with Elaine since 2015 and have nothing but admiration with her passion for anything Dementia related. She always brings her best to any situation Intel has asked of her, whether that is an employee Health Fair or the personalized classes she offers Intel employees to the monthly peer groups we offer employees. She is always there to listen and offer advice (options/solutions). Our employees have nothing but satisfaction with all the services Elaine has offered over the years. I would personally recommend Elaine for the vast knowledge and caring attitude she always brings when dealing with people affected by dementia. I am also proud to call her a friend and colleague helping Intel employees navigate this debilitating disease. They always know they have a friend in Elaine who truly cares about them.
